Basket of Life Farm

As promised, here’s a plug for my CSA this year – Basket of Life Farm. The farm is on Quick Road in Penninsula, and this is their 10th year as a CSA.  My first pickup is next Friday (the 15th), so I haven’t been to the farm yet, but I’ve gotten a chance to talk to the owners via email and see some pictures.  They’re really nice and the pictures are great.

Here’s a picture from their website of a sample share from last year:

If this year’s boxes look anything like this, I’ll be happy!

Yippee for local, organically grown veggies!  Can’t wait!

    That looks like a great haul. It will be fun to see what you get. I know that is a great area for produce. Brian is going to a lucky guy with all the goodies you will be making!

    I am so excited that you found a new CSA by your house. Is it close to where Sheryl lives now, maybe?
    I so look forward to your posts, Melissa!

      I think it is – there’s also a great farmer’s market near her on Riverview Road Saturday mornings, and of course, there’s always Szalay’s! I’ll still be going there for corn and pretzel bread!

        Rufners also has really great annuals. We picked up some double bloom petunias there that we planted in little pots on the back stairs. They are so unique and cool looking. I had never seen them before. The almost look like a trailing Martha Washington plant. The woman at the counter knew their corn was tops too. She told us to make sure we didn’t miss it – and we wont!!

        Sorry, but I still believe Szalay’s is the best! But you’re entitled to your opinion (even if it is wrong!). (I love you, Uncle Kim!)

        Thanks! It’s so much fun, and I love seeing what everyone else is doing. I can’t wait to get my first CSA box so I can start writing about that!

    Jeff, love you, but of course the Rufners women at the counter said their corn was tops! Szalay”s RULES!!! Really, another corn cook off already!? I love this blog, and you all! 🙂
